This is to let you know that the 2013 Portland Cartography Symposium will take place on Friday, 8 Nov 2013.
The Portland State University Department of Geography and the Geospatial Information Society student group will be hosting a one-day cartography symposium on 8 November, at the Smith Memorial Student Union on the PSU campus. This event will include a keynote presentation by a distinguished Oregon cartographer, a full day of presentations on a diverse variety of topics related to cartography, and a map gallery. The event will be free, but advance registration will be required. Refreshments will be served.
You may remember that a similar event took place two years ago. That event was quite successful, with almost 100 students and professionals from the regional cartographic community participating.
At the moment, we would like to get a preliminary headcount of people who might be interested in displaying a map in the map gallery. If you have a map that you would like to submit to the gallery, will you please send a short note to (PortlandCartography2013@gmail.com).
Registration for this year's event will begin in October, and we expect the event to fill quickly. More details about the event will be available soon, but if the event interests you, or if you have questions, contact Chris Grant and/or David Banis at (PortlandCartography2013@gmail.com), or at our email addresses noted below.
Please share information about this event with other cartographic professionals or cartographically inclined folks, and we hope that we'll see you on 8 Nov!
